Rovio is taking their highly successful Angry Birds franchise into a galaxy far far away for their biggest game yet. After being teased last week, Angry Birds Star Wars is now official and set for a November 8 release on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Windows devices, and the Amazon Kindle Fire. Your favorite angry birds are now some of your favorite Star Wars characters from the original trilogy. For instance, the main red bird is now Luke Skywalker while Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, and more, will be played by the other birds. Some gameplay elements that were introduced in Angry Birds Space such as the gravitional physics will return for this iteration. The infamous soundtrack will also get a facelift as well in hopes of catering to both fanbases.
Besides the game coming out next month, there will be a big merchandise push from board games, plushies, and Halloween costumes. It was only a matter of time for the Angry Birds franchise to team up with something like Star Wars and it opens the door for more teamups with other blockbuster franchises in the future. Rovio does want Angry Birds Star Wars to be one of the biggest entertainment launches of the year. With the amount of merchandise coming out and the fact these two franchises are joining forces, they have a good chance to achieve that goal this holiday season. Angry Birds Star Wars comes out on November 8 for PC, Mac, and a variety of mobile platforms.
